  • The different ways to be well-heeled/ The different between pumps,high-heels, and stilettos



    Women wear heels to make a statement. And, that statement can be stronger at times, or, if desired, a bit more subtle. It all depends on the type of heels one prefers to wear, because there are indeed differences between your standard high heels, stilettos, and pumps. As we know, most men probably couldn’t begin to tell you the difference between the three…but you’d be surprised at how many women aren’t real sure of the exact differences in style. In general, heels can be a powerful anchor – if not the most impressive part – to any ensemble. Yet, these three types of heels, each iconic in their own right, and can be worn with grace at work or at play. Okay, so what’s the difference? Well, “high heels” usually refer to standard high-heeled shoes, and, as they were designed to do, make women look longer than their normal height. And the array of styles found in usual high heels can vary greatly, however they are typically 2.1 – 3.8 inches with thick and normal width. Then, there are pumps. These are flat or low-heeled shoes, with a heel of 2 inches or less, with a bit of a wider heel tip. Pumps tend to have a round cut, and are generally preferred with more formal attire – but they can be donned for a casual look with skirts or jeans. So while woman can dance comfortably in pumps, stilettos are a whole other story. This style of heel is truly about the glamor. They possess extra long, slender heels – usually 3.9 inches or higher. The construction of the stiletto heel is of a stem shape, and the core is made from steel or alloy. Stilettos are extremely popular in patent leather material, as that’s their signature look. They indeed add a sense of femininity, but not at the expense of conveying a bit of power, too. Overall, it just makes great fashion sense to stock your closet with all types of heels, and then pick a pair depending on how bold you want to be!
